History


Past

Following a "vision" had by their dying priest, he announced that the sacrifice of their most beautiful woman was the only way to end the "curse" that was afflicting their country. The daughter of Kalgara, Mousse, gladly went to the altar to save the rest of her people. She was ready to be offered as a sacrifice to God when Mont Blanc Noland interfered. As Noland became concerned with Mousse's attempt to commit suicide, Kalgara engaged Noland in combat before ultimately striking the explorer in the chest. The deadline of sundown was given to Noland to demonstrate that he could heal the community without needless human sacrifice, failing which he would have to stand on the altar with Mousse and his men. Then Kalgara threatened to assassinate Noland at the first indication of trouble.


Going outdoors to look for the explorer, he meets Seto, who had just learned the day before that he was infected with the plague. To Kalgara's surprise, Seto responds "much better" when asked how he is feeling. The following day, the island was struck by an earthquake. Believing this to be God's vengeance, Kalgara hurried forth to find and murder Noland. After discovering Noland ensnared in a ground crevice, Kalgara made fun of him. Noland begged Kalgara one final time as God's daughter approached with plans to eat him. Kalgara finally paid attention after hearing the speech and killed the snake. Noland assured Kalgara that everything was alright while he remained there for a time debating whether or not he had done something wrong and fearing for the destiny of his people. Noland and Kalgara later became friends and shared laughs and drinks after Noland successfully treated the disease that had plagued the entire hamlet.

Noland remained on the island for a few more days to see what other trees and flora flourished there. His team came upon a viper during this period, and Noland and Kalgara started to laugh when they realized that the viper was the huge snake's grandchild.


Kalgara showed Noland and his crew Shandora, the city of gold that his people guarded, after being satisfied that they were good people. Noland was shown the Poneglyph and the bell of Shandora, which initially led him to the island, among the remains of the mighty city. But it turns out that Noland and his team destroyed a whole forest, the trees of which the Shandia thought guided the spirits of their ancestors.


As a result, the Shandia reacted hostilely to Noland. Noland did this because the trees were the original cause of the sickness that afflicted the Shandia, but he also destroyed it because he and his crew were once more viewed as outsiders, and so he chose to go nevertheless. Kalgara eventually understood the truth, but it was too late because Noland's crew had already boarded their ship. While agreeing to wait for Noland's return, Kalgara rang the golden bell that had initially drawn Noland to Jaya.


Legacy

Kalgara died bravely in combat without ever learning what had become of his companion Noland. Kalgara's request for the restoration of Shandora's light would eventually motivate his descendant Wyper to try to fulfill Kalgara's dying wish.


Personality

Calgara | Wiki | •One Piece• Amino


Kalgara was an enthusiastic promoter of his people's customs. He had a very low level of trust towards strangers. After meeting Noland, Kalgara's personality changed, and many of his worldviews altered along with it. One thing to note is how he rejects all gods, even the "God" of the Skypieans, after realizing that his god actually was a gigantic serpent. Kalgara appears to relish intimidating strangers and displays a deranged expression of slit-like eyes and a wide grin while licking his lips at the thought of his dreadful reputation. As he makes friends with Noland, this trait changes, and eventually, he starts to cry for his friend to one day come back.


Appearance

The most noticeable aspect about Kalgara was his long mass of red hair, which reached all the way to his legs. He had crimson tattoos on both shoulders and, like all Shandia, his back was covered in a pair of tiny white wings. With his big, insane eyes and a broad, mad grin, Kalgara was clearly ferocious-looking and was also quite physically fit and muscular. He covered his grass skirt with purple lace-leg trousers.


Kalgara’s abilities and strengths, and fighting style


Kalgara in One Piece
Still from the anime


Little is known about Kalgara, other than the fact that he was regarded as the Shandia tribe's best warrior, could engage Noland in combat on an equal footing, and had the strength to slay a huge serpent by himself. The snake Nola is rumored to be much larger than her ancestors as a result of nutrition in the sky and the decrease in the atmosphere, but it should be noted that neither his descendant Wyper nor the pirate hunter Zoro, both renowned in their own right for their exceptional strength, could even touch her. He appears to be incredibly quick as well because he has a reputation for destroying intruders as soon as they show up on the island. People who are familiar with the mythology surrounding him frequently compare him to a monster.


Kalgara’s special abilities
